Shutterstock’s Pantone Project, Swatch 3: Ultramarine Green

exc-520a96b3e4b007829c4739f8

Welcome to another burst of color magic with the third installment in the Shutterstock Pantone Project. This week’s swatch to watch is Ultramarine Green. In nature, Ultramarine is usually blue, due to one of its mineral bases, lapiz lasuli; Pantone’s trending color for fall is hued with green, though, deepening its cooling effect.

Conjuring a rain-drenched, mossy forest or lost underwater city, Ultramarine Green is a great transitional color for the changing of the seasons. Pair it with classic whites for a clean, sleek look, or mixed up with Gold or Titanium for a more Fall-forward approach.

Check out our color-curated inspiration collage and images below, then be sure to catch up on our first swatch, Rose Smoke, and the follow-up, Rhapsody. And stay tuned as we continue to roll out further installments in our Fall Color Guide Series!
